Pierce was in and out of Thursday's practice as he continues to nurse a sore toe on his right foot, which kept him out of Tuesday's game.

Pierce scored a season high 25 points (8-16 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT) with 10 rebounds while fouling out in just 28 minutes Saturday.

This was by far Pierce's most impressive fantasy performance of the season, with the only disappointing part that he took himself out of the game by fouling out. Fantasy owners should not bank on this performance being the new norm, though as Pierce is still on a talented team with many scoring options and should return to his season average of 13 points per game going forward.
